Oh, God love ya! I had a 1992(93?) Toyota Cressida.
BEST car ever. I still see them around on ebay once in
a great while. Tercels are not bad, but after a Cressida.... :)

I bought my dark blue beauty out of the proceeds
I recieved from my mom’s estate.

It ran like a top, too, but I let a jerk,
i.e. ‘ex-husband’, do the maintenance because somebody
(see i.e. above) was too cheap to pay a mechanic....

Anyway, it died too young. I donated it to the
local fire department to use as a practice vehicle
and they were to let me know when they were using it
so my friends and I could come and toast it.
(REALLY small town, REAL small).

The fireman who came to get it was also the
local garage owner amd mechanic.

A month later my precious Cressida was being driven
by woman who was bringing her child to the town
day-care I ran.

She was an illegal from south of the border,
who also happened to be a tenant of the

To this day I can’t get over it - but I am Italian :)

Well, thanks for listening.....
thanks for the suggestion!
I will have another Toyota one day,
or a rusty Ford Bronco - FULL size :)
